Growing up female in America. What a liability! You grew up with your ears full of cosmetic ads, love songs, advice columns, whoreoscopes, Hollywood gossip, and moral dilemmas on the level of TV soap operas. What litanies the advertisers of the good life chanted at you! What curious catechisms!

Aufwachsen weiblich in Amerika. Was für eine Haftung! Sie sind mit Ohren voller Kosmetikwerbung, Liebesliedern, Ratgebersäulen, Hureoskopen, Hollywood-Klatsch und moralischen Dilemmata auf der Ebene von TV-Seifenopern aufgewachsen. Welche Litaneien haben die Werbetreibenden des guten Lebens auf Sie gesungen! Was für seltsame Katechismen!
